1

II,4,698

Now, daughter Silvia, you are hard beset.
Sir Valentine, your father's in good health:...

2

II,4,704

Know ye Don Antonio, your countryman?

3

II,4,708

Hath he not a son?

4

II,4,711

You know him well?

5

II,4,725

Beshrew me, sir, but if he make this good,
He is as worthy for an empress' love...

6

II,4,733

Welcome him then according to his worth.
Silvia, I speak to you, and you, Sir Thurio;...

7

III,1,1068

Sir Thurio, give us leave, I pray, awhile;
We have some secrets to confer about....

8

III,1,1090

Proteus, I thank thee for thine honest care;
Which to requite, command me while I live....

9

III,1,1116

Upon mine honour, he shall never know
That I had any light from thee of this.

10

III,1,1121

Sir Valentine, whither away so fast?

11

III,1,1125

Be they of much import?

12

III,1,1128

Nay then, no matter; stay with me awhile;
I am to break with thee of some affairs...

13

III,1,1138

No, trust me; she is peevish, sullen, froward,
Proud, disobedient, stubborn, lacking duty,...

14

III,1,1151

There is a lady in Verona here
Whom I affect; but she is nice and coy...

15

III,1,1162

But she did scorn a present that I sent her.

16

III,1,1176

But she I mean is promised by her friends
Unto a youthful gentleman of worth,...

17

III,1,1181

Ay, but the doors be lock'd and keys kept safe,
That no man hath recourse to her by night.

18

III,1,1184

Her chamber is aloft, far from the ground,
And built so shelving that one cannot climb it...

19

III,1,1191

Now, as thou art a gentleman of blood,
Advise me where I may have such a ladder.

20

III,1,1194

This very night; for Love is like a child,
That longs for every thing that he can come by.

21

III,1,1197

But, hark thee; I will go to her alone:
How shall I best convey the ladder thither?

22

III,1,1201

A cloak as long as thine will serve the turn?

23

III,1,1203

Then let me see thy cloak:
I'll get me one of such another length.

24

III,1,1206

How shall I fashion me to wear a cloak?
I pray thee, let me feel thy cloak upon me....

25

III,2,1452

Sir Thurio, fear not but that she will love you,
Now Valentine is banish'd from her sight.

26

III,2,1457

This weak impress of love is as a figure
Trenched in ice, which with an hour's heat...

27

III,2,1466

My daughter takes his going grievously.

28

III,2,1468

So I believe; but Thurio thinks not so.
Proteus, the good conceit I hold of thee—...

29

III,2,1474

Thou know'st how willingly I would effect
The match between Sir Thurio and my daughter.

30

III,2,1477

And also, I think, thou art not ignorant
How she opposes her against my will

31

III,2,1480

Ay, and perversely she persevers so.
What might we do to make the girl forget...

32

III,2,1486

Ay, but she'll think that it is spoke in hate.

33

III,2,1490

Then you must undertake to slander him.

34

III,2,1494

Where your good word cannot advantage him,
Your slander never can endamage him;...

35

III,2,1508

And, Proteus, we dare trust you in this kind,
Because we know, on Valentine's report,...

36

III,2,1523

Ay,
Much is the force of heaven-bred poesy.

37

III,2,1540

This discipline shows thou hast been in love.

38

III,2,1547

About it, gentlemen!

39

III,2,1550

Even now about it! I will pardon you.

40

V,2,2098

How now, Sir Proteus! how now, Thurio!
Which of you saw Sir Eglamour of late?

41

V,2,2102

Saw you my daughter?

42

V,2,2104

Why then,
She's fled unto that peasant Valentine;...

43

V,4,2282

Sir Valentine!

44

V,4,2294

The more degenerate and base art thou,
To make such means for her as thou hast done...

45

V,4,2309

I grant it, for thine own, whate'er it be.

46

V,4,2316

Thou hast prevail'd; I pardon them and thee:
Dispose of them as thou know'st their deserts....

47

V,4,2323

I think the boy hath grace in him; he blushes.

48

V,4,2325

What mean you by that saying?
